This is the easiest way to stay cosy and look chic at the same time

It's a difficult time of year to dress oneself and still look relatively stylish. If that's your end game, try this stylish trick

Maybe it's because the heating in our office has been on the blink for the last few days but it has been particularly freezing. It's pants and thick socks weather for sure. It's black tights and boots time if you have to wear a skirt. The thought of having to dress up for some occasion alone would give you the flu. Luckily, there's a way to look stylish and stay warm at the same time with minimal effort and maximum comfort.

Casual-chic is the dress code du jour and we are down with that. Discomfort in the name of style is an outdated rule that no truly stylish person follows anymore. The devil is in the details when it comes to looking like a fashion person while feeling like a comfy one. In summer, this styling trick can get you out of any style bind. Just wear a shirt and jeans - or jean shorts or a denim skirt - and accessorise with a pendant chain. Jeanne Damas is a pendant advocate; I suggested adding the mini but major piece of jewellery to your capsule collection last year. The winter version of the get-out-of-jail look is to swap your shirt with a chunky polo neck.

On paper, it could sound like I'm proposing you dress like The Rock c. 1996, but just look at Camille Charrière's interpretation. That's how it should be done.

For when you want to make an effort, wear your chunky polo and necklace combo with jeans and high-heeled boots. See? Again, it's minimal effort but you'll look put together and you'll be able to wear cosy socks.


(Pretend that micro mini is straight legged jeans and on her hooves is a pair of mid-heeled booties.)

(Imagine that's a polo and she's wearing a pendant over).

A pendant really is an essential jewellery piece, but if you don't have one, you can pick up one up fairly handily on the high street.
